Imagination is necessary for creativity, compassion, human connection, and our relationship with Mystery. In this three-part series, Susan Power will share excerpts from her novel, Sacred Wilderness, offer insights from a Native worldview in which faith, practice, and imagination work in unity, and lead us in using our own sacred imaginations through conversation and fiction-writing exercises.
This series captures the beauty of agates in photos that magnify them up to 20 times by Joseph H. Taubr, photographer.
Creation takes place in the dark, but it seeks the light. The darkness is often bewildering, intimidating, but the artist persists. The theologian James Carse in The Silence of God writes that when we pray, we pray “from the heart as it is” rather than wait until we somehow have our act together before daring to address the Divine Mystery. This evening of poems and songs, featuring Angela Shannon, Laura MacKenzie, Sharon Chmielarz, and Michael Dennis Browne, explores the journeys we must make on the way to transforming experience into words and notes that contribute to the vastness of our shared world.
